Making An Appoinment

Making an Appointment

Some people like to fit GP appointments in with their work or other commitments; others prefer to ring for same day appointments. Some have routine matters to discuss; others have urgent problems needing prompt attention. We do our very best to meet these needs. Our Care Coordinators may ask you a few questions to help you find the most appropriate Health Care Professional.

 

We have three types of doctor appointments available:

 

Booked in Advance

Bookable up to 3-4 weeks ahead, these provide choice and flexibility as to when and by whom you are seen. If these appointments are filled on a particular day the Care Coordinators will look for an acceptable alternative. Other appointments are released 2-3 working days ahead to enable you to see your usual GP with a problem that is not urgent but you would like to be seen within a few days. A number of appointments are also available to book online.

 

Same Day

A selection of appointments are released daily, enabling you to see the doctor quickly if that is your need.  At such short notice there is less flexibility over time and choice.

 

Telephone

Each day there are a number of telephone appointments for when you need advice but not to be seen in person. The Care Coordinators will ask for brief details to ensure this approach is the most appropriate for your needs.

 

Most GPs have telephone appointments available to be booked. We can deal with many things over the telephone including medication reviews, sick notes and other admin tasks, and test results.

 

Whatever your situation the Care Coordinators can only offer you the appointments that are available. Appointments are always in great demand and the GPs have a finite number of hours in the day in which to meet the needs of our circa 6,000 patients.
